Services available to faculty include our information literacy program, faculty librarian liaison program, course reserves, interlibrary loan (ILL), and support locating open educational resources (OER) for affordable learning.
Each academic area at Lander University is served by a faculty librarian as part of the liaison program. This program is meant to provide a personal connection to the library for faculty and students in each discipline. Librarians monitor the specific needs of their assigned areas and provide collection development, reference assistance, and information literacy instruction if requested.
Course reserve materials are any items that instructors would like set aside to support class instruction.
Reserve materials are kept behind the service desk and may be requested through a service desk worker. Reserve items are generally listed as 3-hour library use only. This means that the material may not be taken out of the library. However, some items have longer borrowing periods.
The borrowing period is set in place by the course instructor and will not be changed by library personnel unless permission is personally granted by the course instructor. Students are able to search the Library Catalog for Course Reserves with either the Course # or the Instructor's Name.
If you would like to add materials to our course reserves, please complete the Course Reserves Request form.
